Dermapen Micro-Needling at LAB Skin Clinic Neutral Bay – Call 02 9170 4693
With almost 20 years experience and thousands of happy patients, LAB Skin Clinic is the leading authority in the performance of cosmetic and advanced medical-grade skin needling treatments.
Automated Dermapen micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a convenient innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and colour. During a micro-needling procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process causes a thickening of the dermis, which softens wrinkles.
Micro-Needling also creates micro channels, which allows topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
Benefits of Micro-Needling
Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of ageing. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage and has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
What areas of the body can it treat?
Dermapen Micro-Needling can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
What is involved?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Dermapen and your aesthetician will select the appropriate treatment depth based on your specific skin problem. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently guided over the skin in multiple directions until the entire treatment area has been covered. Whilst some areas can be more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tips makes the treatment comfortable.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin, which is significantly diminished with a post-treatment Omnilux. Typically patients heal completely within 24 hours but healing time can take up to 4 days.
Most clients see an immediate “glow” to their skin with continuous improvements visible over the course of several treatments. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after a course of treatments spaced between 10 to 28 days apart (depending upon needle depth) as collagen production continues. Thereafter, maintenance to keep the results peaked will usually require 1 to 2 treatments per year to maintain optimal results.
TESTIMONIAL: “I look forward to every treatment because I see results immediately. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now and I am so happy. I have had many other treatments before to treat my acne scars and nothing worked as well as micro-needling. I would highly recommend it to anyone!” Elizabeth K., Neutral Bay
